Drumming is Great Exercise!

Looking for an alternative for kids who aren’t into sports? Did you know that drumming is great exercise? Happy Mom Music offers group drumming classes for health and fun.

A university study on drummer Clem Burke of the band Blondie produced some exciting information about drumming as a physical fitness activity.

  • Burke’s drumming during a 2 hour concert equaled the same energy expended by a 10K runner or professional soccer player.
  • Drumming is great cardio. It uses aerobic energy which increases strength in your lungs and heart, improving circulation, and reducing stress.
  • Drumming also uses anaerobic energy building muscle mass, and increasing stamina.
